Sam's father beat him when he was a kid. Adult Sam decides the best way to deal with his trauma is to kill his dad. He draws inspiration from real-life serial killer Ed Kemper, who killed his abusive mother. An interview of Kemper is shown where he discusses murdering his mom, so there's that, too.

I wouldn’t call it excessive but Alan does fantasise about stabbing Sam a few times and there is a fair amount of blood spray. In episode 7 I think, the fantasies escalate to include Sam getting shot in the head by the police. It happens very suddenly with not much warning and is pretty graphic.

So far the entire show is safe 1-6. Episode 7 is also safe. Episode 9 is also safe, and the best episode thus far.

Holocaust imagery used to convey generational/community trauma inside the mind of a Jewish man. Put here because I'm sure it is triggering but idk if there's a better category at the moment

Very. A main character dies and there's basically no justice for anyone.
